Welcome to the George and Isabel Rutherford Reunion website. The reunion was held at Easter 2010, celebrating 150 years since George and Isobel settled on the land at Leslie Hills, North Canterbury, New Zealand.
Over three days, we shared the company of over 500 Rutherford descendents who came from as far away as Canada, Norway, UK, Australia and the length and breadth of New Zealand.
After a lovely cocktail party on the Friday night, we celebrated with a wonderful parade on the Saturday and picnic lunch in the grounds of Leslie Hills, followed by a gala dinner that night. On the Sunday, lunch was held at Montrose, another Rutherford property, followed with a bus trip to the Waiau Museum, Mendip Hills, Montrose, Morna Downs and Leslie Hills.
It was an amasing feeling knowing that all the descendents came from the same two people. A memorable weekend, enjoyed by many.
